Re: TD 359 - Remix (Q1 - Q10 revealed)

Maybe next time I'll think before I sheep. I had to go with nadia because it's the only one I was sure of. Looking back I should have dropped that question and just gone with my answer for the double double one of which I knew most of them of course. Congratulations Wells. I think the bonus questio...

Re: Tuesday, November 14, 2017 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

The Peaceable Kingdom (Sorry guys- my 4-year old knows this one!) Is that because of Little Einsteins? Because I think my 4 year old would also get that one. I was thinking this was the hardest match (or worst categories for me or whatever) of the ToC so far, but my coryat was 26,400. 36/3 Lach Tra...

This game should come with a warning for Brian Weikle: http://www.j-archive.com/showgame.php?game_id=293 Thanks to watching the UTOC in its entirety twice I got that trash, plus the Australian river, and I’m old enough to have seen the Dennis Weaver show first run. https://farm5.staticflickr.com/45...

You could've spotted me Robert Browning poem, children's story and German village and I still wouldn't have come up with Hannibal Hamlin. Had completely forgotten he was Lincoln's first VP. Glad to see Austin move on. He's my favorite contestant this season. Was shocked that, on her DD, Lily seemed...

MYANMAR HAS SADLY MEANT WORST ANSWER OF THE TOURNAMENT BURMA SHAME i think it is a worse answer than the answer given by the woman a few weeks ago when she said colorado rockies for the team that marcus allen played...geography is an academic category, so not sure why people on jeopardy struggle so...

What. A. Game. The Jeopardy! Tournament of Champions never fails in the excitement department, but this one so far has really been something special.

Bhutan? Myanmar?? I think they either misread or misunderstood the clue - and it just goes to prove that even some of the best players have one of those moments. (At least Bhutan satisfies a couple of the elements, but yikes to Myanmar). i guess dude never heard of mandalay bay and association with...

Hi! My first post. I was a contestant on tonight's show. … I also misread the Wright Brothers questions (coming up in my mind with Wilbur), but when Nan said that, it took the wind out of my sails.

Weird Al is a "rock" satirist? That almost seems like it should be tagged as erratum. Most of the songs he parodies seem to fall under Top 40/pop. I also thought that Carlos should have been penalized for not pronouncing his name right. totally agree...they often chastise people for butchering name...

once again jeopardy contestants show they are inept at geography...really wish they had a geography/sports jeopardy game...the 2 categories in which the majority of contestants suck...my 2 wheelhouse categories and could do well with it
